Unfortunately, they've been having a few "issues" while playing together lately. She is four months older than him and they are both in the "idontwanttosharewithyouandwhateveryouhaveiwantNOW" stage... It's been a little rough. Aidan is also starting to push, while J is pulling hair and pinching.
You probably now think that I am officially insane for dealing with two squabbling toddlers and a newborn. I was actually starting to question my sanity as well when I agreed to take her for the evening.
Luckily, they got along beautifully. We literally had no issues whatsoever. They played great together and had a wonderful time!
We watched nursery rhymes, danced the hokey pokey and played ring around the rosey.
Then they had a delicious dinner of macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets and yogurt. They both insisted on sitting in "big chairs" to eat. It was better for me to oblige than deal with the crankiness that would've ensued.
Soon after that Jason came home and he played with them for a bit while I tended to Connor. Then, it was time for Baby Einstein and bed.
We all had a great time together. The next morning, J came with us while I dropped Aidan off at playschool. She wanted to stay and play with him! I convinced her that it was time to go see her Mommy, so she gave Aidan a kiss and off we went.
I can't wait until they are older and we can have more sleepovers! I know that they both really enjoyed themselves. Whoever said that children at this age are incapable of forming friendships has obviously never met these two kids!
P.S. Sorry for the terrible pictures. It's impossible to get decent photos of two squirmy toddlers!
